Hallo!  Last week was the first week of the easter holidays, which I spent on a rotary “Youth week” trip in Bavaria (southern Germany). We were thirty exchange students from various districts, and together we had an incredible week. The first two days we got to explore the beautiful cities of Wurzburg and Nuremberg, which were both heavily bombed during the war but rebuilt to look the same. In Wurzburg we also visited the Marienburg Fortress as well as the Wurzburg Residence palace. After visiting Nuremberg, we got a tour of the Doku-Zentrum - the giant area Hitler started to construct for his new government and army. It was never fully finished, but you could see the plans and what kind of scale Hitler was aiming for.
 
 
Karen Brown, of the Arts Council for the South Shuswap, recently came to tell us about the great programs they have for youth in their area.  This offers general programming to children and adults in dance, art, music and some theatre.  As well, regular outdoor summer concerts are available for the public, and the long-running Shuswap Festival of the Arts, running in July.  For more information, you can see their website.
 
Everyone seemed to enjoy our first annual Casino Night Royale.  People were able to have a lot of fun "gambling" (just for chips, no money) at the tables.
 
Here's Heino Lilles and his tulip crew planting 400 special bulbs for Canada's 150th birthday.  They will be in bloom in the spring of 2017 in front of City Hall.
